  • Just a dream

    TEST GODS by Nicholas Schmidile I didn't care for the title of the book, though the non-fiction aspect of test pilots was intriguing. The book follows Mark Stucky in his personal quest for NASA. Unfortunately, NASA rejected him repeatedly and he was able to find fulfilling work as a test pilot. We learn the history of Virgin Galactic and what it meant to that company to possibly get the first tourist space ships into operation. They had to design the properly shaped space ships, design a fuel that could propel the ships "out of this world," and find pilots who kept their cool and were able to fly out of our atmosphere. When you think of being a space tourist, you'd probably think that only a select few of the world's richest inhabitants would be able to afford a seat, you'd be right. Space tourism isn't for the middle class or lower classes. Probably not even many years into the future. It's just not affordable. But, it's okay to dream about it. That's what Virgin Galactic started with, was a dream. Many thanks to #henryholt #nicholasschmidle for the complimentary copy of #testgodsvirgingalacticandthemakingofamodernastronaut #testgods I was under no obligation to post a review.

    Thanks for your feedback!
